South African Design in the News

A short while ago I was breezing through one of my favorite reads, when I saw this. Let me introduce you to Phoebe Munro and her shop in Melbourne, Australia. If you look on her shelf you'll see homewares from South Africa! The red bowls on the bottom left are paper mache', made with the labels from anchovy packaging. Just one example of the ingenuity of using the everday to create something special.

Here is a similar bowl at home in South Africa, in a beach house in St. Francis Bay.

(As seen in Vogue Living, Australia, and Elle Decoration, South Africa.)
